I bought one of those 800 strip auctions on ebay...
I thought it would great to get a bunch of strips to use.

800?! Maybe I'm a little crazy? I hope they look good!

So, post your ideas for using these up please.

I did find a great coin pattern and kisses and hugs pattern on the Moda site.

I also got some amazing yardage from a local store Fabrictown, while I'm on a business trip... WOW, I'm ready to try that OBW! I'll post a pic of the prints when I can...

How about a brick pattern? Like staggered. Bonus-no matching seams.

Right now I am using strips to stitch and flip on a large piece of batting to use as the quilted fabric for another purse. I can cut it out vertical, horizontal, or diagonal.

I'll post pictures as soon as they arrive (within a few days I'm sure). Thanks for the ideas!

Go for the Chinese Coins or the Bricks pattern. Each would show off all the
fabrics.
